While it is easy to work with tables in PowerPoint, you will always need to select some particular part of the table to work with this means you will have to select an individual table cell, or even separate rows and columns while performing various tasks such as populating tables with content, or adding and removing table rows/columns, or merging and splitting table cells. Sometimes you will also need to select contiguous cells in both rows and columns, or even the entire table itself.

Tables can make your data or other content look organized and make it easy for your audiences to quickly understand how the content in one or more cells relates to the content in other cells. However, even with all this organization built-in within the tabular structure, tables still need aesthetics. A table on your slide looks good when its rows and columns are arranged and sized in a proper manner, and the table cell content is aligned well.

Once you insert a table in PowerPoint, you will certainly want to fill it with some content. However, that does not mean your table is done and may never require any more changes to be made. Like anything else in life, tables need to grow and accommodate more content or they may even need to shed some of it. Adding or removing content within a table usually entails adding and removing table rows and columns, as required. You can add or remove these from the edges of the table, or even somewhere right in the middle of the existing rows and columns.
